Alam Ara - The first Hindi movie ever made. The only print (Only? In this day and age? Why? why?) was destroyed in a fire at the National Archives. 'Alam Ara' goes missing - Times of IndiaKapil Dev's classic rescue of India with a blast of 175 in the 1983 Prudential World Cup when tottering at 10 runs for 6 wickets was never recorded on video because the BBC photographers (who were the only ones authorized to record) were on strike that day. It finally makes me understand the paranoia about the loss of Vedas/all knowledge in our mythologies.How many times have independent groups of humans invented fire and forgotten it? Agriculture? Hunting? The wheel?
